The 46-year-old Underworld actress — who previously dated Kelly’s pal Pete Davidson — shut down dating rumors via social media after a troll said that she was “infected” after spending time with the Bird Box star.“Why don’t you worry about things that are actually happening and donate to the Australian wildfires rather than waste your time on things that are not happening and never were,” she wrote at the time.

However, in the past few weeks at least three animals - a lone male and a female with a cub - were caught on film by a motion sensor-equipped camera trap installed near the Big Almaty Lake by an NGO set up to protect the species.

Zoologist Alexey Grachyov, who works with the Snow Leopard Foundation, said that in the mountains near Almaty there are only around 20 of the animals left, making the sighting extremely rare.

The snow leopard has gray or white fur with black spots and a bushy tail, and its population is distributed across a wide area including mountainous regions of Russia, Mongolia, China, Nepal, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

New Delhi (Sputnik): Ever since a 21-day national lockdown began on 25 March, nature has revealed itself in different ways in India: from a Himalayan bear in Gangtok city to endangered civets, deer, Indian bison, and an Asian blue bull have all made appearances in the streets.

A common misconception is that snow leopards live only at high altitudes, when in reality they live closer to humans than most people realize, Grachyov said.

"This is a unique population that has adapted to human presence. Every snow leopard probably sees humans, cars, sees the city every day, sees it encroach on its habitat."

The foundation's long-term plan is to rebuild the snow leopard population by breeding and releasing them into the wild.
